Palm Desert PD Gunning for Lindsay From the Get-Go

1/4/2011 5:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... the Palm Desert Police Department was rabidly trying to get Lindsay Lohan arrested just days after her altercation with a Betty Ford Center staffer.

Sources say a police lieutenant contacted L.A. County Deputy Probation Officer Barbara Parker shortly after Lindsay's December 12 run-in with Dawn Holland, asking her to come to Betty Ford and arrest Lindsay for violating her probation.  When Parker told the lieutenant it would be premature to take such drastic action, we're told the lieutenant began arguing with her and it got "extremely heated."

We've learned after the call, the lieutenant's boss called Parker to apologize.

As TMZ reported earlier today, the police are now saying Lindsay violated her probation by committing a battery.  What's interesting is that it's for the L.A. County Probation Department and ultimately a Beverly Hills judge -- not the police in Riverside County -- to conclude if Lindsay violated probation.

Sources tell TMZ ... the L.A. County Probation Department will take no action against Lindsay unless she's convicted of battery in Riverside County.

Lindsay will beat this battery rap but she will find trouble soon enough. Just as soon as she borrows a cup of powdered sugar from her new neighbor, lol.

Of course not. Did you expect her to get in trouble? If anything, she will just get another slap on the wrist. She isn't treated like a regular person, they act like she's royalty or something and by the way she acts, she must think she's above everyone too!

Well it sounds like Riverside County wants to arrest? It just takes time.

You would think that if you were in this situation you would try to be squeaky clean, so you could get on with your life. Is there entitlement rehab?

A 10 year old girl discovers a supernova (during her holiday break) and yet, Lazy Lohan gets the media attention.

Time for a society check?

Oh great now lets start with the oh the police are going after Lindsay because she is a celebrity BS.

Her probation should be violated because she broke BF curfew and refused an alcohol test when she returned to BF plain and simple.

Funny...When I heard that Lindsay had had an "altercation" with a staff-member at Betty Ford...try, as I might, I struggled NOT to assume that the staff-member looked like this! But, now that I see her...I know that my evil assumptions were spot-on!

It seems that wherever there's any unpleasantness...wherever there are physical tussles, and a blatant display of disrespect, and ghetto crap...this is the face that you will see...

I'm no fan of Lindsay, who is a pathetic, hopeless SKANK. But, some of her issues may have sprung from a dread-lock wearing, supremely ENVIOUS and RACIST type...who hates "Whitey", and lusts for "Whitey's" acclaim and money. This Holland person saw, in Lindsay, a financial advantage that she will NEVER have...and, probably set-out to knock Lohan down to size...because of her own stifling insecurities and inferiorities.

Just my opinion...

I love how people act like they know Lindsay or her situation. She is taking a legit run at getting her life together and people like this lady just want a piece of her fame. Why else did she run and do interviews? How unprofessional!!!

"Lindsay Lohan, Lindsay Lohan"... Could you guys PLEASE find something else to talk about? Many of us don't care if she successfully completes rehab---again---or parties, or does drugs, or goes to hell in a nicely-decorated hand-basket. She is a self-absorbed, marginally-talented, directionless and sad young woman who is headed for self-destruction, and we really don't need to watch.

Of course the probation dept isn't doing anything! Why should she get in trouble? She's Lindsay Lohan. I think if I get in trouble for anything I will have my laywer bring up all of this. If SHE doesn't have to pay for ALL her crimes, why should you or I?????
